Here is a prototype of the TV commercial that will begin airing the week before the event. Note that the dates (Aug 24-25) are correct in the ad, but the voiceover says "this weekend" since woin't be airing until the week of August 19th. If you are watching it two weekends before, keep that in mind.
"I really like how the fair site has grown since I had last seen it and I love all the little touches and signs throughout the grounds. I hope you continue to make it a special place. Love the peacocks because they remind me of when I worked at a zoo. Love the other animals. LOVE the trees." - Kresenz M (2012)
